It's Taboo lost her way at the end of last season and looks a bit exposed now. Mrs Warren may also lack the scope of some of today's rivals while Hasbah failed to build on a promising debut last year and only beat a couple home when favourite on her reappearance at Wolverhampton. Speed Date could be interesting on her first run for a new yard, however, and Is This Love was second at Wolverhampton in March. AT A CLIP showed her inexperience at Newbury by fighting for her head. She wasn't punished once her chance had gone and much better is expected here. The nicely-bred Dee Aitch Dove was also very green on her debut and may provide the biggest threat.
